    "As mentioned below, this school struggles. There is no way the school deserves the maximum number of stars! The teachers don't handle the size nor the diversity very well and students pay the price. The communication is almost non-existent. I've been begging for 3 years to be able to know what my children's homework is and to get the materials from which they are teaching so that I can help at home but I've given up. If your child can't handle getting you all that information him/herself, they are content to simply let the student fail. The teachers can not teach, tutoring sessions are really just a place for kids to be after school rather than home alone, and parents can't effectively participate because the school refuses to communicate directly with parents and instead communicates to you through your child."

    "I am pulling my son out of this school and am putting him in private. My son tells me everyday about the things he experiences here and it amazes me. I feel sorry for the students that HAVE to stay that aren't a part of the problem. There are so many problem students attending this school and the "good" students are having to endure the results of the "bad" students problem "homelives". It is really sad. I went up to the school and spoke with the administration and even they told me they have never seen a class like this EVER in all the years they have been teaching. It is bad....really bad. My son has come home two times within the past two weeks crying. I'm OVER THIS SCHOOL!"

    "Thank God my son was only stuck there for one year ('08-'09). There was horrendoulsly little communication from admin to staff, less from staff to students and none from staff to parents. The band program was draconian (wanted my son to go to a clinic at UT on a Sat instead of taking his only chance to visit a relative whom he hadn't seen in 3 years and dinged his grade when I refused to permit him to go). A miserable experience for both my son and his teacher mom. Done public and private--Worst Experience EVER!"
